In the course of hunting and gathering content for the Adafruit blog, I come across a lot of neat art installations. Sometimes I post them on AF, but sometimes they don’t quite fit here. Because I still want to share them with people, I’ve started a new tumblr — Installation-A-Day — which is kind of like Hack-A-Day, but for art installations (and without comments). It’s been going now for about two weeks, and I hope to keep updating it daily. I’m trying to be very democratic about what I post there. High production values aren’t necessarily a requirement, as long as I think the idea is cool.
You can check it out at installationaday.tumblr.com -or- follow the newly set up twitterfeed @i_a_day. Feel free to submit installations as well. It’s still in the formative stage, so feedback is appreciated.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
